Neighborhood Revitalization

Lenexa is a great community in which to live, work and play. Over time, however, our city has faced challenges: aging public infrastructure, aging housing, increasing code violations and other issues. Lenexa is committed to improving conditions in neighborhoods facing such challenges by focusing services and programs on comprehensive improvements and combining the strengths of the community with the resources of the city.

Neighborhood Revitalization District

The boundaries of Lenexa's Neighborhood Revitalization District are north to 85th Street, south to 98th Street, east to Goddard Street, and west to Acuff Lane. The district also includes two small portions of the city to the north and south of this area. View the Neighborhood Revitalization district map or use the search tool to see if your property is within the district.

Neighborhood revitalization incentives are available to encourage property owners to reinvest in their properties and improve neighborhoods in an effort to continue Lenexa’s reputation as a safe, attractive and friendly community. Property owners within the established neighborhood revitalization district may apply for any or all of the programs. Review each program’s criteria to ensure eligibility.

A Brush with Kindness

A Brush with Kindness is a new partnership between Lenexa and Heartland Habitat for Humanity to help residents in need with a variety of minor home repairs. Habitat coordinates supervised volunteers to complete exterior repairs like wood rot, painting, window replacement, excessive vegetation growth and more.

To qualify for this program, you must have an active code violation case with Lenexa. Income restrictions may apply, and special needs circumstances will be taken into account. The city will refer pre-qualified applicants to Heartland Habitat for Humanity for consideration. Contact Angel Whitaker at 913.477.7701 to learn more.
